Helena Christensen, a Danish supermodel and former Victoria's Secret Angel, has turned designer. She has launched her "Essence" set of lingerie, under the Triumph brand.

Christensen has been the face of Triumph for about a year now and the supermodel clearly felt it was time to contribute some of her own designs to the cause.

"I'm personally not into too much padding and wiring. I like the more old-fashioned look. I like [a cleavage] that's not too much - a tiny hint of something. I'm not a Wonderbra girl, no," Christensen was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

Christensen has designed three items for the brand's Spring/Summer range - a bra, a skirt and briefs.
